What have you found is the best sealant to use on the headlamp rope gasket that seals the headlamp lens against the reflector rim? Jim Patrick

I just use a hot glue gun and stick it on there.Be sure to put seam at bottom so water can run out.

Venetian blind cord glued on with contact cement. If you have the rope gasket, I would use contact cement. I'm not a big fan of hot glue. Hot sun will melt hot glue.

Like Hal, I use rubber cement.

I used a little dab of clear silicone caulking. Like Brylcreem a little dab will do ya!

I'm with Dennis on that one. Worked well on my '15.

Vaseline would be period correct. :-)
